Classical Music Recitals, Concerts, Musicians, Composers and Special Events-img src=http:khedgecock.podOmatic.commymediathumb19940x0_1259077.jpg alt=itunes pic br This week we are proud to present, the OSU Recital: Making Music Together

The recital will feature ensembles of three or more. The performance, which is part of the Orchestras Fall Recital Series, will begin at 7:30 pm at St. Judes Episcopal Church at 70 North 200 West in Cedar City.

Pachelbel Meets U2 by Jon Schmidt will be performed by the Blaine and Kirsten Hofeling Family. Blaine and Kirsten and their nine children recently returned from Nauvoo, Illinois, where they spent the summer performing in the LDS Nauvoo Pageant. The children actively participate in Cascade Strings and Suzuki Strings in Cedar City. The two oldest children perform regularly with OSU. Jon Schmidt is an American pianist from Salt Lake City. He describes his style as New Age Classical, though some describe his work as New Age with pop elements of hook and melody. Jon began songwriting at age 11. His influences include Mannheim Steamroller, Billy Joel, and Beethoven.

The Southern Utah String Quartet will perform two pieces by Luigi Boccherini:

Minuetto con moto for Quartet in A major, Op. 33 No. 6 and Minuetto from Quartet in C major, Op. 39 No. 1. Boccherini was a classical era composer and virtuoso cellist from Italy. At the age of 18 he began playing and composing for Don Luis, the younger brother of King Charles III in Madrid, Spain. During his lifetime, also performed for the French consul Lucien Bonaparte, as well as King Friedrich Wilhelm II of Prussia.

Pianist Tracey Bradshaw, cellist Brooke McNaughton, and violinist Sara Penny will play Trio in E Minor, Op. 67 Allegro non troppo by Dmitri Shostakovich. Shostakovich was a Russian composer during the Soviet period. He had a complex and difficult relationship with the Soviet government. His music was officially denounced twice, in 1936 and 1948, and his work was periodically banned. However, he also received a number of honors and state awards and served in the Supreme Soviet, the highest legislative body in the Soviet Union. Despite the official controversy, his works were popular and well received; he is now considered to be the most talented Soviet composer of his generation.

The Flower Song from Lakme by Leo Delibes and Evening Prayer from the opera Hansel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck will be performed by vocalists Jackie Jackson and Lara Neves. They will be accompanied by pianist Teresa Redd. Jackie will also be singing at the OSU Talent Showcase on Thursday, September 18th at the Heritage Center.

Vocalist Christine Winterrose, pianist Julie Beck, and violinist Sara Penny will perform Here I Am, Lord by Daniel L. Schutte, arranged by Craig Courtney. Here I Am, Lord is a sacred song that was composed when the Catholic Church first began to use vernacular hymns at Mass. Its words are based on Isaiah 6:8 and Samuel 3. It quickly proved to be a popular song at Catholic masses and Protestant services.

Support for this series comes from the RAP fund for Recreation, Arts, and Parks administered by Cedar City Corporation. Recitals continue each Tuesday through Oct. 7.
